Dr. Yun Chen’s main research area is in experimental and theoretical fluid mechanics that encompasses interfacial dynamics of complex flow systems, including droplets, particles, and bubbles at fluid-fluid interfaces, with an emphasis on environmental protection and biological applications. The current focuses are to study the surfactant-driven droplet and particle motion, and particle encapsulation in droplets, via microfluidic approaches, towards the development of novel biomedical devices.
